    Full title... "'We're getting soft': Kentucky governor says America is weak for closing schools as a deadly arctic deep freeze wreaks havoc with record-breaking low temperatures" Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin has criticized schools for closing as a deadly arctic deep freeze wreaks havoc on tens of millions across the United States as they are hit with record-breaking low temperatures. Hundreds of public schools and several large universities from North Dakota to Pennsylvania canceled classes on Tuesday and Wednesday due to the dangerous temperatures. Bevin, in an interview with NewsRadio 840 WHAS , said America was weak because of it. 'Now...

    LEXINGTON-After months of speculation, Gov. Matt Bevin used the 2018 Republican Party of Kentucky Lincoln Dinner to announce he will be running for re-election in 2019. The first term governor ended his speech to the crowd of 500 with the announcement, drawing cheers. “You bet I’m running again. You bet I’m running again,” he told the crowd. “The work that is being done right now in our House and in our work that is being in our Senate is just getting warmed up. Buckle up because the next five years are going to be something to watch.” Bevin cited a...

    LOUISVILLE — Attorney General Andy Beshear made his first campaign stop for the 2019 race for the Democratic gubernatorial primary in Louisville on Monday morning, with a message focused on teachers and the future of Kentucky. The Louisville announcement on Monday morning was the first for Beshear, and his running mate, Jacqueline Coleman, an educator and founder of non-profit LEAD Kentucky — a program that recruits and trains college women in an effort to build the next generation of leaders. The slate planned seven stops across the Commonwealth on Monday and Tuesday to announce their campaign.

    FRANKFORT Gov. Matt Bevin, making his first public comments on a sexual harassment scandal that has rocked the state House of Representatives, called Saturday for “the immediate resignation of every individual who has settled a sexual harassment case, who is a party to trying to hide this type of behavior.” Bevin, in a hastily called news conference in the Capitol Rotunda, mentioned no one by name. The Republican governor called the allegations serious and reprehensible. “These alleged actions, which haven’t been denied, are reprehensible, indefensible and unacceptable. Any elected official or state employee who has settled a sexual harassment claim...

    The Executive Branch Ethics Commission has thrown out a pair of complaints accusing Gov. Matt Bevin of accepting an improper gift by spending $1.6 million to buy a home in March from a state contractor and member of the Kentucky Retirement Systems board that had been valued at around $2.5 million by the Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator. In letters dated Wednesday and first reported by Kentucky Today, the commission’s executive director, Kathryn Gabhart, informed Rep. Darryl Owens, D-Louisville, and Richard Beliles, chairman of Common Cause Kentucky, that their complaints had been unanimously dismissed by the panel at its meeting...

    On Thursday, California Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra said Texas and three other states were being put on a list of states that had adopted laws seen by Becerra as discriminatory to the LGBT community and therefore were off-limits for state-sponsored travel. That drew a response Friday from John Wittman, Abbott’s press secretary. "California may be able to stop their state employees, but they can't stop all the businesses that are fleeing over taxation and regulation and relocating to Texas,” Wittman said. A spokesman for Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin also criticized California officials. “It is fascinating that the very same West...

    At a press conference on Friday, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin (R) gave the media what they asked for and delivered a point by point rundown on why he, according to them, gives short shrift to news reporters. Bevin addressed several issues he says the media is deliberately falsely reporting or simply not doing “a little homework” on before running the stories simply because they don’t agree with him politically. He points specifically to the “breaking” story that Bevin hadn’t paid his taxes yet. {..snip..}

    Democrats did President Donald Trump a favor by picking former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to give the Party’s rebuttal to the president’s joint sessions speech. The former governor, who was defeated by Republican Matt Bevin, provided a stark contrast to an energetic, charismatic president. And, apparently, he forgot which party he belongs to.

    FRANKFORT Angry union workers packed the hallways of Kentucky’s Capitol Annex on Wednesday as Republican lawmakers pushed ahead with bills that would ban mandatory union dues and repeal a law that requires regional prevailing wages for workers on public construction projects. The chants of union workers were little deterrent to Gov. Matt Bevin and his GOP colleagues in the Kentucky House and Senate, who have made approving the bills their top priority of the 2017 General Assembly. Shouts and banging could be heard from the hallway, but the meeting room itself was packed with supporters as the House Committee on...

    FRANKFORT — The chairman of a House committee investigating the delay of an $11 million road project in Jessamine County has resigned after he says House Speaker Greg Stumbo denied his request to subpoena a Democratic lawmaker who accused Gov. Matt Bevin of retaliating against him. Rep. Jim Wayne, D-Louisville, submitted his resignation during a meeting Thursday, saying Rep. Russell Meyer, D-Nicholasville, ignored a letter requesting testimony under oath last week. When he wanted to subpoena Meyer on Nov. 30 because “his was the most severe accusation against the governor,” Wayne said Stumbo’s chief of staff ordered House Clerk Jean...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky’s Republican governor said blood might be shed if Democrat Hillary Clinton is elected president. Speaking to the annual Values Voter Summit on Saturday in Washington, Bevin said he was asked if the country could ever recover if Clinton were elected president. “I do think it would be possible, but at what price? At what price? The roots of the tree of liberty are watered by what? The blood, of who? The tyrants to be sure, but who else. The patriots,” Bevin said, referencing a quote from Thomas Jefferson....

    The State Journal (Frankfort, KY) ^ | 8/15/2016 | Brad Bowman
    Despite a lower bid, Democrats couldn’t stop Monday’s approval of the $500,000 contract to carry out Gov. Matt Bevin’s investigation of the former Gov. Steve Beshear’s administration. The Democrats also criticized awarding the contract to a firm they said employs multiple Kentucky Republican Party operatives. The Government Contract Review Committee, made up of three Republicans and three Democrats, listened to testimony from Finance and Administration Cabinet Sec. William Landrum concerning the contract given to Indianapolis based law firm Taft Stettinius & Hollister. Bevin announced in April that Landrum would undertake the investigation after former Personnel Secretary Tim Longmeyer was charged...

    After a judge ruled that Gov. Matt Bevin’s moves to replace the University of Louisville Board of Trustees did not pass legal muster, the governor is calling on Attorney General Andy Beshear to say whether he believes the former board meets legal requirements regarding the panel’s political makeup. Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd granted Beshear’s request for a temporary injunction on Friday, finding that Bevin’s actions in abolishing and reconstituting the UofL board overstepped his authority. Bevin’s office has said it will appeal the ruling. In his June 17 press conference, Bevin justified his executive actions by saying the board...

    Kentucky’s Republican governor on Tuesday ordered an investigation into what he described as wrongdoing under his Democratic predecessor, charging that state employees were coerced into contributing to political campaigns and that a contract was improperly steered to a politically connected company. Gov. Matt Bevin’s allegation of “greed and oftentimes corruption” escalates the feud between the new governor, who took office in December, and the Beshear family: former Gov. Steven L. Beshear and his son Andy, the state attorney general. On April 11, Andy Beshear sued Mr. Bevin, saying the governor acted illegally in cutting higher education spending without approval by...

    When Republican businessman Matt Bevin ran for governor of Kentucky, he promised to make a number of budget cuts in order to help fix the commonwealth's budget and salvage the huge deficit in the state's pension plan. He also promised to change marriage licenses issued by county clerks and to end the commonwealth's healthcare exchange program.The heart of Kentucky's Democratic political fortresses in Lexington and Louisville didn't think Bevin stood a chance on beating out their candidate, Jack Conway, then Kentucky Attorney General. Since 1947, only 2 Republicans have won the governor's mansion in this good old boy state prior...
